Now we have a cheap SNAP programmer, which can program XMEGA devices, I suppose.
The problem is, that in device pack for XMEGA is no information about the SNAP programmer, so Atmel Studio cannot use it. I noticed that for other AVR families device packs were already upgraded, but nobody has touched XMEGA for years. The fix is pretty simple - just add one line to device pack. So can we expect the upgrade?
